Plus a new version of rRaw.

PhShpLyrs is an application from Anton Reiser that makes it possible to pull the image and individual layers from a Photoshop PSD file and save them as a RISC OS-native image format. There are some limitations as to the type of PSD file, but when such a file is loaded into the application it allows the main image and any layers to be saved as sprites (with a full alpha channel). It’s also possible to wrap all of the layers (though not the main image) into a Drawfile.

Anton also released an updated version of rRaw earlier this year. Version 0.04 of the application, which is able to read raw files from various digital cameras, benefits from a bug being addressed that affected some Nikon NEF 14-uncompressed files, and also gains some new features, such as the ability to export GPS geolocation data from the ‘About this image’ window.

Many thanks to Carlos Michael Santillán for giving providing me with a heads-up about these.

If news were a hot dog, this would be the ketchup. (Ketchup? Catch-up? Geddit? No? Ho hum – where’s my coat?)

Here at the RISCOSitory/Soft Rock Software top secret underground bunker (whose entrance is cunningly disguised as a ramshackle shed) things have become somewhat busy positively hectic over the last couple of months, which has resulted in no news being posted to the site whatsoever for almost a month – not even in the ‘press release’ format whereby an announcement is simply quoted in full. So, in order to catch up – and possibly look back over other things that have been missed previously – it’s time for another dreaded ‘Snippets’ post! (Boo, hiss!) Continue reading »
